Anonymus hacked public and private websites of China
China, April 9, 2012
The hacker group Anonymus reappeared on the scene across the world. In China, they conducted a massive attack on nearly 500 websites of private and public entibies such as government agencies.
The 485 sites that were victims of the attack were “tagged” with a message where hackers referred to the “strict scrutiny to which citizens of China are subjected.”
Exactly 485 sites were those who suffered the cyber attack from hackers. During the time they were offline, the group published messages against the”strict scrutiny to which the people is submitted” and made a call to “all Chinese to join the group to make their own protest actions against the regime of the Chinese government.”
The BBC said the attack was held by the Anonymus Chinese subsidiary, created in March this year. On that occasion, the group released “Dear Chinese government, you are not infallible. Today your pages were hacked, tomorrow we will destroy your vile regime.”
It is worth mentioning that the Asian giant has one of the most stringent in the world in terms of control and surveillance of Internet surfing, known as the “Great Firewall of China”, aimed at limiting the flow of information through the restriction of sites and issues contrary to the interests of the Government.
